Are drivers language specific ?

  1. Hi All !

    I bought a Toshiba Dynabook WX-3727 laptop a few days back. It came with Japanese Windows XP Home Edition. I already had Windows Professional (English) Edition with me which I load on the same drive (60 GB came with only one partition) with dual boot option. Now the problem is that I don’t have drivers for the video card (ATI mobility Radeon 9000 IGP) and the flash memory stick reader. So the display is not at all good when I load my laptop in English OS. Also memory stick reader drive doesn’t work with english OS.
    I saw on internet that there are some programs using which we can make back up of the drivers in .exe form. So can I make backup of drivers in Japanese OS and try and load the same in English OS ? Will it work ? Are drivers also language specific…Please help me with this…

    I'd just wipe it out and reinstall a clean XP, then do Win. Updates.
